My name is Jackie Iram. I grew up in Girard, Kansas and received my Bachelor’s Degree in Elementary Education from Pittsburg State University in Pittsburg, Kansas. I earned my Master’s Degree in Early Childhood from Western Kentucky University in Bowling Green, Kentucky. Over the years, I have taught everything from preschool to third grade, but I especially love teaching pre-kindergarten! My husband, Matt, and our family moved to Springfield, MO in 2011 from Carl Junction, MO. We are members of Redeemer Lutheran Church and have two children. Andrew is 16 and a sophomore at Kickapoo High School. Ella is 13 and attends 8th grade at Springfield Lutheran School. In my spare time, I like to spend time with my family and friends, travel, and work in my flower garden. I am excited to begin my third year at Redeemer Nixa Preschool and thankful for the opportunity to work in such a wonderful, Christ-centered environment!
